Great atmosphere, veey close to hotels and to the beach! Is a nice place to taste a good mofongo. If your staying in the area you can get a tase of the Puerto Rican cuisine and night life. Nice employees, great service.

Friday night special is a full rack of ribs for $15. We felt like the Flintstones eating a brontosaurus! Delicious BBQ sauce and 3-4 people can easily eat from one rack or go super hungry! Great service and music.

We stopped at Walmart to stock up on water and asked a few people for a food recommendation. They sent us down the street to this place. The food was amazing! The service was great!

It was great. I had La Chuleta Cancan which is a huge chunk of pork chop with skin on that is deep fried and the skin becomes cracklins with the meat soft and well seasoned.

The staff really fussed over us and we thoroughly enjoyed our food. So glad we stopped here! We had Morongo Para Dos to sample local cuisine. It was excellent.

We order a mofomgo, I came delayed and cold. We told to the waitress and she respond so worried. The manager replaced the plate but it came again, cold.

We were a large group not sure if that caused our food to take a long time but when we did get it it was very yummy. The rice and mofongo is very good. The mojitos are very good. I would go again prices were reasonable.

I usually stop here for one of their awesome sandwiches. Love them, especially pastrami, pork, and the steak. Just wish their fries were crispier. Sometimes they are even soggy. That costed a star.
